Playa La Jaquita is a beautiful new sandbeach in Alcala
The beach Playa La Jaquita
The beach isn't very big and is sloping down to the water. So far, this beach does not have the blue flag, but it already offers everything a well-maintained beach needs: it has clean and clear water, a good view - on many days you can even see the neighbour island - sun loungers and sun umbrellas which you can rent, toilettes, showers, a beach bar and life guards who take care of the visitors safety. If you don't want to rent sun loungers, you can lie down in the sand on your beach-towel... Just relaxing, doing nothing and knowing that in Alcala, the sun shines almost 365 days a year.
On the way to the beach you will pass by pretty seawater pools. Following the boardwalk, you will walk along the sea and see beautiful gardens.
Our tip: at the outskirt of the town Alcala there is a Finca with 5 private holiday houses which have their own access to the beach.
🏠 This holidays will be different 🏠 with beach - nature - and surrounded by locals.
The Location Alcala
Insiders already know... The fishermen's village Alcala is called the most beautiful coast town at the southwest coast on Teneriffa. The holiday maker can enjoy the sun and the warm temperatures all year long. Alcala is one of the best climatic zones on the entire island.
The former fishermen's village did grow in the last years. Now you have many small stores and shops, and a low-rise hotel which appearance is fitting to the other buildings in town. The town Alcala and the holiday makers (also the holiday maker who rent their own apartment) benefit of it. There is a nice and new long boardwalk which leads you to the beach while passing by beautiful gardens and there are cafés right at the sea. Nevertheless, Alcala kept many original things. On and around the Plaza you will still find the old feeling and atmosphere. Old people are sitting in the shade of ancient trees and no one is stressed or in a rush... everything and everyone is calm and easy-going.
The water is smoothly sloping into the water, so the beach is also convenient for children.
Diving and snorkelling
At the beach is a beach bar and in the town are good local taverns, cafes and fish restaurants.
